NBA DFS Top Plays for 10/25/23
The NBA DFS season is back! To kick things off, we’ve compiled a list of NBA DFS top plays for tonight’s games that you won’t want to miss. Whether you’re a seasoned DFS veteran or just dipping your toes into the world of NBA DFS, these picks are sure to help you build a winning lineup.
Desmond Bane – Memphis Grizzlies
- FanDuel (FD) Price: $8100 | DraftKings (DK) Price: $7400
- Strengths: Massive usage, scoring ability, DFS-friendly matchup
- Weaknesses: Scoring-dependent
The Memphis Grizzlies are dealing with the absence of Ja Morant and Steven Adams, which means Desmond Bane is poised to take center stage in the offense. During the preseason, Bane showcased his scoring prowess. With a matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans boasting a high total and a narrow spread, Bane’s potential shines even brighter. Last season, he averaged an impressive 42.5 FanDuel points per 36 minutes with Morant off the floor. However, keep in mind that Bane’s DFS success can be tied to his scoring, so if his shots aren’t falling, he might not meet expectations.
Evan Mobley – Cleveland Cavaliers
- FD Price: $7400 | DK Price: $6300
- Strengths: Rebounding, inside presence, favorable matchup
- Weaknesses: Inconsistent offense
The absence of Jarrett Allen in the Cavaliers’ lineup opens the door for Evan Mobley to shine. Mobley’s rebounding numbers tend to improve when playing closer to the basket, and with Damian Jones as the backup center, the Cavaliers lack frontcourt depth. Facing the Brooklyn Nets, who struggled on the boards last season, Mobley is in a prime position to excel. While his offensive game can be inconsistent, the matchup and opportunity make him a chalky play.
Tyrese Haliburton – Indiana Pacers
- FD Price: $9400 | DK Price: $9400
- Strengths: Assists, high floor, favorable matchup
- Weaknesses: None apparent
Tyrese Haliburton is set to be one of the league leaders in assists, providing a high floor in DFS. His consistent production, averaging around 50 DraftKings points per game, makes him a reliable choice. Facing the Washington Wizards, who ranked 21st in defensive efficiency last season, Haliburton has historically performed well against them. With a dreamy matchup to start the season, he’s a top play on tonight’s slate.
Kawhi Leonard – Los Angeles Clippers
- FD Price: $9200 | DK Price: $9400
- Strengths: All-around excellence, high DraftKings points average
- Weaknesses: None apparent
Kawhi Leonard is a fantasy force whenever he takes the floor. His ability to contribute across the board, averaging nearly 50 DraftKings points per game over the last three years, makes him a valuable asset. Facing the defensively challenged Portland Trail Blazers, Leonard’s potential for a big night is sky-high. After a healthy offseason, he’s ready to continue his top-tier performance.
Jaren Jackson Jr. – Memphis Grizzlies
- FD Price: $8200 | DK Price: $6600
- Strengths: Increased usage, shot-blocking, DFS production
- Weaknesses: Foul trouble potential
With Steven Adams and Brandon Clarke sidelined, Jaren Jackson Jr. is set to thrive for the Memphis Grizzlies. Last season, during Ja Morant’s absence, Jackson averaged an impressive 51.8 FanDuel points per 36 minutes. His shot-blocking ability and potential for increased usage make him an enticing option. While foul trouble has been a concern in the past, Jackson has shown improvement in that area.
